Thank you Alex
I do not have a any share certificate, and i wasn't given a shereholders agreement.
I was appointed a director in december 2011 and i didnt not sing AP01 form, but i have found it on companies house, where the structure of the company stated that i have 20%
I have got access to the company's financial record.
I was working for this company since 2006, and in 2011 when i was pregnant , we had a big client going bankrupt, leaving the company with a massive debt. I was on maternity leave when they offered me a shares on the company, as they had to sing a company voluntary agreement to avoid closing the business down. I was under pressure, to keep my job to agree to join the company,and as you can understand, with me being 7months pregnant i wasn't able to seek for a job.
I was told that the only way to save the company was if we will all take guarantees, and this i calculated on the percentage the business. My guarantees are for 24k and the other directors for 25k. This all was making sense to my, as they said own a 32% and the other 2 directors own 34%. I have discovered few weeks ago that the split between us is not 32,34,34 but 20,40,40.
I always trusted them very much and i just didn't even thought that something is wrong. I didn't know i need to sign an agreement, or that something like a share certificate exist. I feel i was overused and i don't know what to do....should i leave and how to leave , if i am also a guarantor. I dont want to take this to court, unless i wont have any other choice, i just want to leave, and start a job in similar business. I think i cant work here any more due to a trust issue.
i am loosing my mind, my business partners would normally be the people who i would go for an advice and i have no one else here who can help me.
